Brad Arthur says Eels won't be making Milford move

Trent Barrett, the interim coach at Parramatta, wants club management to decide as quickly as possible who will officially replace Brad Arthur. Brad Arthur showed up for work on Wednesday without knowing if he would stay with the Eels for the long run.

Barrett stated that it could be essential to have everything “out in the open” to make sure NSW State of Origin center Zac Lomax does not change his mind about joining the team the following season.

It was reportedly decided at the Parramatta board meeting on Tuesday night who will lead the organization in 2025: Barrett, Jason Ryles, Josh Hannay, or Dean Young.

Barrett is eagerly awaiting the board’s pronouncement that no public statements will be made until after Thursday’s game against South Sydney.

“I believe so. Barrett responded, “I think for everyone, the club and the players,” when asked if the team ought to release a statement right away.

However, it hasn’t had a major impact on the players. They work as professionals. They must go through it, even though it’s not something you experience frequently. Their role is to have fun and play it effectively.

Three straight losses that have relegated the Eels to second last in the NRL standings with only four wins this season haven’t helped Barrett’s cause.

The interim coach, nevertheless, is convinced that his club is performing better than the stats indicate.

They are now playing a good brand of football, but we haven’t quite had the outcomes we were hoping for in the last several weeks. We simply cannot cross that boundary,” he remarked.

“The past three weeks have not been kind to us. We could have won the last three games, especially the one against Newcastle this past weekend, and we had that fantastic victory over Cronulla.

“Three of their tries came off our dropped balls, which we believed to be tries.”

“If you watched the games, I thought the performances were pretty good; we just couldn’t win.”

Lomax moved to Parramatta while Arthur was still the coach, agreeing to a four-year contract.

In response to questions about whether he was afraid the St. George Illawarra star would change his mind, Barrett said a choice made by the coach could help assuage any anxieties.

Barrett remarked, “I know Zac very well; he needs to know too.”

“It’s likely that he signed here thinking Brad was the coach. People often find it difficult when incidents like these occur. Everyone will benefit if everything is in the open.

Parramatta will have to play the following six games.

The winger sustained a fresh injury in his comeback game against the Knights last Saturday, following his absence from recent games due to a hamstring problem.
